Lake Manyara



Lake Manyara National Park

Today you will visit Lake Manyara National Park for a full day game drive. Stretching along the
base of the Rift Valley escarpment it is home to giant fig trees, acacia woodlands, mahogany
trees & grassy flood plains. The contrasts of this area are simply breathtaking with its open
plains, huge escarpment, Soda Lake, dense woodlands & distant volcanic peaks coming together
in an area best described by Ernest Hemingway as “the loveliest I had seen in Africa”.
Animals such as buffalo, wildebeest, giraffes, mongoose, dik dik & zebra herds congregate on
the grassy plains while the acacia woodland is home to the legendary tree-climbing lions &
tusked elephants.

Lake Manyara provides the perfect introduction to Tanzania’s bird life with more than 400
species being recorded. Highlights include thousands of pink-hued flamingos on their perpetual
migration as well as other large water birds such as pelicans & storks. After the days events we
will have overnight at your hotel in the park.

This park is known for its breathtaking panoramic views, waterfalls and babbling brooks with
clear water and hot springs. It is located between the rocks of the Great Rift Valley and Lake
Manyara. Of the approximately 390 km2 that make up the park, two-thirds of that is water. The
rest of the park is a large strip of land between the lake and the rocks.
The beauty of this park is partly due to its large variety of wildlife, grasslands, forests and water.
Lake Manyara has one of the largest populations of water birds in Africa at over 400 species,
including flamingos and pelicans. Large herds of elephants are also found here, as well as
giraffes, hippos, water buffalos and impalas.
